1980 Mercedes-Benz 230 - 40000 Miles



This is not the average Mercedes Benz 230 W123 we see on the market, this is a top class, superb low mileage, largely original car with just 40,000 miles from new with an exceptional service history. The Mercedes Benz has been garaged throughout its life, superbly maintained, and has covered 2000 faultless miles since we supplied it to its most recent owner, a Sunderland based Doctor who purchased the Mercedes Benz from us in 2020, four years ago. The owner prior to this had covered 3000 miles over the previous four years and drove it to us faultlessly from Crewe. It is without doubt one of the finest available, and must been seen to be appreciated.

The Mercedes was first serviced at 1049 miles at Mercedes Benz Chorley, Lancashire and again with the same dealership at 3988 miles. At 9572 miles T H Bennett Motors Ltd in Preston serviced the car and at 14401 miles another privately owned garaged serviced the car, Allison's Garage. Mercedes Benz Canterbury serviced the Mercedes at 21263 and 22661 miles and Bradshaw & Webb (Chelsea) Ltd serviced the car at 28301 miles. Mercedes Benz Canterbury had the car back at 29090, 31648 and 32498 miles and Mercedes Benz of Southend carried out a service at 33865 miles. Further to the original service book, MOT's dating back to the 1980's and various service invoices also warrant the lovely low mileage. We carried out a major service at 38000 miles in 2020 and the Mercedes Benz was serviced with a North East Mercedes specialist in 2023.

This really has to be the very best Mercedes Benz 230 we have seen; the condition is remarkable and the car retains all its original manuals and unused tool kit, all the thing you'd expect of such a genuine, honest and original car. It's clear the car has been maintained with no expense spared, the fact Mercedes Benz main agents have carried out the majority of the car's maintenance indicates this and with a relatively new set of Continental tyres we can see how well cared for and thought of this car is. The Mercedes Benz has never required welding work, has superb, excellent straight panels, lovely paintwork and trims, and the interior is exceptional and original.

DCK 370W presents beautifully throughout, the engine bay is very smart and original, the boot compartment excellent and the car has been nicely detailed. On the road is performs superbly, it keeps up with modern traffic, is capable of long distance motoring and it's been trouble free for its last owner of four years. Everything including the sunroof appear to function correctly, and the car has all the signs of a vehicle that has been cosseted for its entire 40 year life. This example will not disappoint, it's quite simply outstanding in every respect and is a credit to its few previous owners.
